Description

I feel like I’ve been working on this all summer, but it’s really been a little over a month and it’s been more off than on so I can’t totally complain.

And why would I want to? I love this swimsuit! It’s so fun. I wanted a vintage two piece and Ohhh Lulu’s Ginger Bodysuit really delivered. Because I love challenges (when I start), I grabbed this fun striped fabric that I felt would complete my vintage look.

I’m so pleased with the results. It was my first swimsuit and my first time matching stripes so while it’s not perfect, I think it’s pretty close.

I feel so amazing in this which I NEVER thought I would say about a swimsuit!
